IVF Florida Reproductive Associates and Donor Egg Bank USA Hit 1,000 Embryo Transfer Milestone

IVF Florida Reproductive Associates, the premiere fertility center in Florida, and Donor Egg Bank USA, the largest frozen donor egg bank in the United States, have reached the milestone of more than 1,000 embryo transfers completed.

IVF Florida Reproductive Associates has partnered with Donor Egg Bank USA to provide frozen donor eggs as a treatment option for women who are unable to conceive using their own eggs. Donor eggs provide the highest pregnancy rates of any fertility treatment. After a frozen donor egg is fertilized with sperm, the resulting embryo is transferred to the patient’s uterus.  As a partner of Donor Egg Bank USA, IVF Florida Reproductive Associates offers local patients access to a national donor database.

Pregnancy success rates of frozen donor eggs are nearly equal to that of fresh donor eggs. Of the 1,000 transfers at Donor Egg Bank USA, 59 percent of women became pregnant and 44 percent continue to carry a pregnancy or have delivered a baby.   Left over embryos not used in the original transfer increases a woman’s chances to achieve a live birth from a single egg lot to over 50 percent.  Donor Egg Bank USA is the only frozen donor egg bank that provides pregnancy outcome data for all locations and every transfer. 

“Our mission is to help people become parents,” explains Dr. Hoffman of IVF Florida Reproductive Associates. “Frozen donor eggs are an important piece of the fertility treatment puzzle. This option can save patients time and money without compromising success.”

“With donor egg offering the highest pregnancy rates of any fertility treatment, this is an important option for couples to have," says Heidi Hayes, CEO of Donor Egg Bank USA. "We’re honored to partner with IVF Florida Reproductive Associates to make this option available to local couples." 

In addition to IVF Florida Reproductive Associates, Donor Egg Bank USA is partnered with 28 leading partner practices at 95 locations throughout the United States and Canada.

While a traditional (fresh) donor egg IVF cycle can cost $25,000-$38,000, a frozen donor egg IVF cycle is half the cost. Couples can obtain frozen donor eggs immediately and complete an IVF cycle in as little as one to two months. With a (fresh) egg donor the entire process can range from four to nine months. 

The national donor database offers a wide range of characteristics such as physical traits, ethnicity, education level and more. All donors in the database have completed their donation cycle and have frozen eggs ready for selection.

Donor Egg Bank USA is the only frozen donor egg network to offer the 100% Assured Refund Plan™ Program which guarantees a full refund if a couple does not deliver a baby after six cycles.
